Synthetic Tackifiers Market Intelligence Report for Comprehensive Information

Press Release

Synthetic Tackifiers Market: Polymer and plastics segment is expected to hold the lion’s share in the synthetic laminates market owing to the increasing demand from the rubber applications

Market Introduction

Synthetic tackifiers are used in different adhesives to impart tack and enhance the stickiness of the adhesive surface. Synthetic tackifiers are used to maintain the balance between adhesion and cohesion and enhance the high temperature adhesion properties of the material. Synthetic tackifiers possess good resistance towards aging and cohesion. Based on application, synthetic tackifiers are used in two types of adhesives, namely, water-borne adhesives and solvent-based adhesives. Various types of synthetic tackifiers, such as hydrocarbon and phenolic resins, are comprised of synthetic tackifiers, such as C5, C9, dicyclopentadiene and phenol, among other synthetic tackifiers. These synthetic tackifiers are used in natural rubber, synthetic rubber, ethylene vinyl acetate rubber and acrylic acrylate, among other applications.

Synthetic tackifiers are manufactured from petroleum-based products obtained from petroleum refineries. The limited supply of fossils is strongly affecting the oil and gas industry and will thus limit the raw material supply for the manufacturing of synthetic tackifiers.

Market Dynamics

The growth of the paints and coatings industry is being driven by increasing construction activities and automotive vehicles production. The growth of both of these industries is expected to upsurge the demand for synthetic tackifiers in the coming years.  Growing demand for synthetic rubber in the automotive industry is expected to drive the sales of synthetic tackifiers for the synthetic rubber applications. The polymer and plastics industry has shown significant growth in recent years, owing to which, the synthetic tackifiers market is expected witness healthy growth in near future.

Non-economical process of manufacturing synthetic tackifiers is expected to retard the growth of the synthetic tackifiers market in the coming years. Limited supply of raw materials for the manufacturing of synthetic hydrocarbon-based tackifiers is expected to limit the growth of the synthetic tackifiers market in the coming years.
